Description
Description
Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK) are single-pass transmembrane receptors expressed on the plasma membrane. Upon the binding of an extracellular signalling molecule (e.g. growth factors, hormones), RTKs dimerize leading to the activation of the intracellular tyrosine kinase domain and intermolecular phosphorylation. The phosphotyrosines function as specific sites for the assembly, phosphorylation and activation of downstream signaling molecules. (Adapted from PMID:20602996).
Notes on Group
Wsck is predicted to be a pseudokinase based on sequence analysis in FBrf0209106.
drl, Drl-2 and dnt are members of the Receptor related to tyrosine kinases (RYK) subfamily. Members of this family are catalytically inactive (pseudokinases) (FBrf0222811, FBrf0132248).
In other metazoans, otk orthologous kinases are inactive. otk deviates in some consensus kinase motifs, indicating that it may be a pseudokinase. However, FBrf0055961 have shown a kinase activity associated with immunoprecipitated otk.
